Scouting for Food drive begins Nov. 1

To the Editor:

The local Boys and Girls Scouts are holding a food drive, called Scouting for Food. Starting Nov. 1, volunteers will be hanging door tags on local community homes asking for food pantry donations, and providing instructions on how to contribute. We’re collecting non-perishable items, including but not limited to pasta, cereal, canned foods, etc. No glass items, please.

To participate, simply bag your food according to the instructions on the tag, and leave it on your doorstep for volunteer collection on Nov. 8. If you miss this deadline, you may also drop food at the Milford Fire Station before 12 p.m. on Nov. 8.

Thank you for your generosity.
